The Symbolism of the Yellow Ribbon
During the 1970s, the popular song "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree" revived a centuries-old tradition of using a yellow ribbon to show support for loved ones far away. Another story tells of a freed convict who wrote a letter to his wife asking her to tie a yellow ribbon on an oak tree to let him know she still loved him. If she did not, he would continue on his way instead of returning home. Since then, the yellow ribbon has come to represent freedom, love, peace and faith.
